Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's Gully Boy has been one of the most loved films of this year. With a story that resonated so well with the fans, and the entire concept so different, the movie has been selected as India's official entry to the 92nd Oscar Awards. Talking about the same, Farhan went on to say, “I am very grateful to the Film Federation of India as they have selected Gully Boy. Gully Boy has been selected as India’s entry for Oscars. And I am very grateful to the Film Federation of India as they have selected Gully Boy."

He further went on to add, “A lot of hard work is left, about 150 countries send in their entries for the foreign film category. So to get selected and reach in the final five is a very big thing in itself. After which, we’ll see what happens next. But firstly we’ll work our hardest to get into the final five." Also expressing her happiness was Farhan's The Sky Is Pink co-star Priyanka Chopra Jonas who went on to say, “We send one film each year as our entry for Oscars. Every year, one film gets selected that is sent as an entry for the foreign film category. But this time, what is really special about Gully Boy is firstly it’s a beautiful film and secondly every person who is attached to this movie is my friend. Thirdly, I really feel there’s a lot of potential in this film to reach the final five."
